Day 8 - Warwick Castle / Stratford On Avon / Game 4

This morning under unusually clear skies, the group headed off to Warwick Castle to explore and to participate in the "Dungeon Experience".

Stratford on Avon was the next destination to visit the town where William Shakespeare was born.

Game #4
Girls 1-2 Loss
The girls started strongly and put the opposition on the backfoot early. The game proved to be expansive with end to end hockey with neither team giving on inch.
The pressure applied by the girls in the second half ensured a lions share of the possession. Despite going down narrowly the positive signs of improved cohesion in attack is pleasing.

Boys 2-2 Draw
The boys also started strongly with rapid ball transfer from defense into attack and despite the efforts of the opposition goalkeeper managed to take a two goal break into the break.
Hockey as they say is a game of two halves and despite creating a number of chances in the second half, turnovers and loss of structure allowed the opposition two late goals to take a share of the spoils.
